the dead were crisp and in the no-monitor-completely-digital mode. jerry sounds clean and sharp on this one. despite some flubs and a mumbly tune here and there, i like fall '93 shows. catching the string in boston (loved 9-29-93), i missed this show. everyone always highlighted the guest nights at m.s.g., but this gives much more flavor of the dead punching the time clock and delivering magic in places.
the days between has muscle. no joke. it shows the potential for flight they had at this point in their career, ready to turn another new sound era corner. unfortunately, within a year, it was beginning to sound more like crashing and burning. check them out here poised for flight in a new direction with sound and spirit. too bad it was never fully consumated.
this would get 4 stars, but some cuts are not up to par. a shaky eyes is always a buzz kill for me.
